The next morning, we headed over to a waterfront market that has little shops, cafe's, etc. We walked along the river (which has flooded), and had some lunch before travelling back home. Spring has really sprung over here in the Prarie's - see? no snow! There are still a few feet of ice on the lake, and snow on the ground in our neck of the woods - patience is key here while awaiting spring - oh yeah, and lots of trips South :)
Now, I couldn't leave without giving a recipe, so here's a smoothie that I made for lunch today, with the young coconuts I bought in the city. Yay, I am so happy and grateful!!!!
Vanilla Nut Smoothie
1 cup young coconut water
1/2 cup packed young coconut pulp
1/3 cup macadamia nuts
1/2-3/4 cup ice
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp lucuma powder
1/8 tsp mesquite powder
3-4 drops vanilla stevia (or agave to taste)
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Drink up with a big smile on your face!
I hope you had a great weekend too!
